A little wellbeing tip for the morning…
Agave (also referred to as Agave Nectar/Syrup) is not a health(y) food!!
Commonly considered a nourishing replacement for sugar, it has found its way into numerous recipes and raw desserts. Agave is derived from a cactus plant, and therefore some consider it to be “natural”.
However, in actual fact, the finished product undergoes far too much processing and does not resemble the natural cactus of its origin.
Yes, agave may be low GI and therefore considered beneficial for diabetics. For your information, my laundry detergent is also low GI but you don’t see me recommending that to my clients.
